Cardiff have announced that Wales centre Willis Halaholo has signed a short-term contract with the province until the end of season.

Halaholo initially joined the province in 2016 but his career has been hampered by regular injuries. He was set to leave Cardiff last summer but after recovering from an Achilles injury, he re-signed in October and has featured in nine games this season. Overall, he has racked up 106 appearances for the province scoring 18 tries.

He previously represented Hurricanes and was part of the squad that clinched the Super Rugby title in 2016.

The 33-year-old made his Wales debut in 2021 and on his first year, he went on to win the Six Nations title with the side.

“I’m really happy to be staying here at the Arms Park for the rest of the season. It is a club that me and family love and there was a huge motivation to pull on the Blue and Black again this season and to reach 100 appearances", said Halaholo to the club's official website.

“To be able to continue running out with the boys, and in front of our amazing Arms Park support, for the result of the season is something I am really grateful for and excited about.

“There are so many great young players coming through here. They are the future of the club but I am really enjoying being out there and also helping them along the way.”

Cardiff are positioned 12th in the United Rugby Championship table with three wins from nine matches.
